In his own age group. Factor in child prodigies from the 16 age group and he drops way lower in the rankings. He's only a 3 star player, and more then likely he will not get into a D1 college tennis team. Predominantly those colleges take at the minimum 4 star players. Very rarely will they recruit anyone under that, unless they are looking to fill up spots at the bottom of the team (i.e. Baylor, who recruits overseas and then fills up the bottom with ok backups). That is a generalization. I know some D1 coaches will take a 3 star player if they have time to develop them. For instance, I know a junior around here who is ranked in the top 300 who is going to Texas A&M Corpus Christi (pretty good tennis school). He has the raw talent, huge serve, big ground strokes, and great for a 6'2 guy. Reason why he is not doing better is due to injuries, fitness, and lack of variety. He is going to A&M CC because Steve Moore has a plethora of Europeans who will play in front of him. This will allow him time to develop the junior player for a year and transition him to the college game. 3 star recruits are good players. A few of them will be recruited into a D1 school (lower end of D1), while the majority will be going to D2 schools. Most fall into the 5.0 category. They have weaknesses to their game that does not allow them to get above that level. 5.5 is pushing it, while 6.0 is not even possible. It's better to underrate rather than to overrate anyways.
